Legendary electronic pioneers Underworld, aka Rick Smith and Karl Hyde have just released  a new double A side single: Listen to Their No. It brings to an end the pairs fifty-two week DRIFT series, and is accompanied by news of a new album and their biggest ever headline shows.
The bands DRIFT series saw pieces of music, film and text were  created and released every Thursday for a year as part of the bands on-going process. By the end of the project, more new music and film will have been released by Underworld in that year than has been in the last fifteen.
The new album, DRIFT SONGS, is out on October 25th, and pulls together, expands and enhances a selection of the recordings made since the experiment began back in November last year. The album will be released as a single CD, double vinyl and crucially an all-encompassing box-set featuring the music, visuals and text pieces that were released throughout the entire 52-week duration of DRIFT.

‘Listen to Their No’ is the first trck from DRIFT Episode 4, and is a bubbling, whirring, and ultimately uplifting piece of disco house/techno goodness. It’s pulls and propels you along with this hypnotising synth lines and then cadjoles you into falling for it completely with melody and this vocal line that drapes itself over the accomapniment.

Brilliant stuff.

DRIFT SONGS is available to pre-order now at www.underworldlive.com
